Sherrill S. Cannon, I love the theme of this book! I’ve talked about finding dimes and knowing they are from a guardian angel (one special friend who has crossed over leaves me pennies 🙂 with friends many times. Great book and article!

A psychic medium once said that if you find a random dime, it is a sign that someone that you have loved and lost is thinking of you.

A Dime is a Sign Through Time

If you find a dime,

You will know that I’m

Sending thoughts of love

Through the veil of time.

 

Ten cents with a silver shine,

A sense sent you to help remind

That someone who left you behind

Is always living in your mind.

 

Sending love and vibes,

Felt as psychic sighs …

The ones that you miss,

Send you a kiss …

Sherrill S. Cannon’s second book of poetry contains messages written through the years in poetic form that put feelings into words. As a teacher, many of her poems helped counsel troubled teens and friends.

There are three sections in the book: Heads, Spinning, and Tails … (Love & Loss: Coin Toss?). The variety of lyrical poetry forms include free verse, blank verse, haiku, and sonnets, while some are just playing with words!

Hopefully, this is also a book of healing.

Sherrill S. Cannon, a former teacher and grandmother of ten, is the author of nine acclaimed rhymed children’s books, plus a recent award-winning book of poetry (A Penny for Your Thoughts), which together have received 63 national and international book awards since 2011. She also wrote seven published plays for elementary school children that have been performed in over 25 countries. Most of her children’s books emphasize consideration for others. Married for 58 years, she and her spouse are now retired, live in Pennsylvania, and travel in their RV from coast to coast, spending time with their children and grandchildren, and sharing her books along the way!
